git-scp — Copy files to SSH compatible git-remote
`git scp` -h|help|? `git scp` <remote> [<commits>...|<path>...] `git rscp` <remote> <path>
A convenient way to copy files from the current working tree to the working directory of a remote repository. If a <commits>... is provided, only files that has changed within the commit range will be copied.
Internally this script uses rsync and not scp as the name suggests.
git-rscp - The reverse of git-scp. Copies specific files from the working directory of a remote repository to the current working directory.
The git remote where you want to copy your files.
Any commit, commit range or tree. Uses `git-diff`(1)
The <paths> parameters, when given, are used to limit the diff to the named paths (you can give directory names and get diff for all files under them).
To sanitize files using dos2unix before copying files
$ git config --global --add extras.scp.sanitize dos2unix
You can run the files through PHP lint (i.e. php -l) before copying files
$ git config --global --add extras.scp.sanitize php_lint
Make sure you have git-remote(1) setup
$ git remote add staging myStagingServer:/var/www/html
